She never liked me and therefore never helped me. I ended up dropping orchestra because no matter how hard I practiced, she still wouldn't acknowledge my work and effort. I was not really "in" with the orchestra clique anyway, most of my friends were on the athlete side of things. so I think she might have known this and that's why I was treated how I was. Overall, orchestra was a miserable experience because of her and I will never pick up another instrument.
Mrs. Torrente holds a special place in my heart. From the trips, to the life lessons, to giving me an appreciation for music, she is a very special teacher. Just don't show up late or play out of tune.
Mrs. Torrente will get mad at you if you are late, but besides that a very nice, very popular and very good orchestra teacher.
Amazing teacher. Truly got me to fall in love with both her, my instrument, and the class. I probably would have quit if it weren't for her...I don't know what I'd do without her!!! WE LOVE YOU MRS T!!!
Laid back and nice, but she certainly knows what she's talking about. She can get a little angry when people get out of hand, and keeps the classroom in control. Great teacher :)
mrs torrente! this is my senior year, i'll definitely miss class with ya. *tear* keep teachin, keep carin. and every once in a while play some cello for us!
Known Mrs Torrente most of my life, she loves music and most importantly she loves her students!
she is the most l33t teacher ever, people that get C- dont deserve to play in her orchestra, but i love her she is SO COOL, and she gives us pizza
ms torrente is cool for a teacher who has a son in the school
Pretty good... easy grader and the class is pretty laid back. Some people don't like her but maybe if they practiced and went to lessons they'd stop complainin
